8/10: I haven't said this in a while: THIS IS BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL
Sunday, March 22, 2009

Let's face it, there are a lot of remakes, there are some good one's: The Thing, The Hills have Eyes, and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. There are some average one's: House of Wax, House on Haunted Hill, and War of the Worlds. Then there are the bad one's: Halloween, The Fog, and Psycho. Last House on the Left, my parents had absolutely held me from the original movie, but when I became an adult I rented the movie and watched it by myself, I was just so curious what they were trying to hold me back from, I wasn't really shocked with the movie, I could see how it was gritty and brutal in the day, but after seeing movies like I spit on your grave, Hostel, Dirty Harry, Casino, etc, it just didn't really effect me. So I was actually looking forward to a remake of this just to see what they would...

8/10: Brave remake that had it's balls cut off
Monday, June 22, 2009

This remake is a prime example of how "Revenge Cinema" is the new "in" sub-genre in Horror.To those who haven't seen the original I can suggest to watch this remake without thinking it's a remake. To me, it was very hard not to compare both.While the original has brutal, sadistic, and cruel violence; this remake was very toned down. Don't get me wrong, I'm not supporting raping, cruelty, and extreme violence; but the movie's plot and message justifies it.The most important scene in the movie deals with the raping of a virgin underage girl. In the original it's a brutal scene that also deals with gore and more; on this remake the fore-mentioned scene was VERY TONED DOWN by Hollywood and you can say it by the editing. The original was just merciless and painful to watch but it justified the parent's rage and revenge. Also, Paige's...

1/10: Base Depravity is not Horror
Tuesday, July 27, 2010

Whatever happened to scary horror films? I mean films that actually make you feel afraid as opposed to films that sicken you with their depravity. For me, scary horror films are ones like the originals of psycho, alien, the exorcist and poltergeist. These were truly scary, clever pieces of art that thrilled us with the director's ability to scare the bejesus out of us through plot, script, music, acting and special effects. True masterpieces of the genre.The Hills Have Eyes, (and its predecessor and successor versions) and the other depraved films like Last House on the Left (both versions) rely on rank perversion and unnecessary depravity to achieve their "shock value". They are not, in my opinion, scary or fear-inspiring; they are simply depraved to the sickest degree.Have movie makers lost the ability to be creatively scary in their art? Must every 'horror" film that is made now have to include young, virginal girls being repeatedly...

1/10: A movie ruined for me by one scene
Friday, August 14, 2009

A near 5 minute long scene depicting a young girl being raped in which it shows him unzipper his pants, and you get to hear every sound from a side angle as you get to whitness him penetrate her, and for the duration of the next 5 minutes get to see her scream in horror as his parts smack against her rear. Absolutely terrible, horribly offensive, and unnecessary trash, possibly the most irritating scene I've seen in any movie. Maybe it's because this was the unrated version i watched. It didn't need to be so offensive to be shocking, and i guarantee the rating of this movie (6.8 currently) would be at least a 7.3 had it not been for that scene. I hope others agree, if not, that's really effed up. The rest of the movie after that for me was wasted potential. That one scene absolutely ruined it for me and left...

5/10: Below the belt
Saturday, October 3, 2009

I have just watched The last House on the Left 2009, never seen the original and I'm pretty disappointed, Its just another one of those productions that the writers have lost their imagination so they attempt to make a film as gritty and shocking as possible.I am a big, big fan of 'real to life' and hard hitting films. However in this film, the scene where the girl Mari is raped for nearly five minutes is way below the belt. I think we have enough imagination left to understand when a girl is shoved to the floor and her clothes ripped off that she is going to be raped, its not necessary to see it happening.I do not see the point, whatsoever, of watching a young girl screaming with her head in the dirt and a guy thrusting for five minutes. And this raises some concerns for me as there will be plenty of weirdos out there...
